Currently, in the United States is a large number of construction projects that strike not only their idea but also the estimated value. With the various megaprojects that are built or destroyed, it's difficult to track their development. Although all the construction projects are expected to fully open or reach significant milestones this year.

Why is it important to consider the largest construction work? There are two main reasons. The initial one is in the fact that such projects  can affect the total volume of the dollar. That is, the time and size of these projects have an exaggerated effect on market forecasts and this is a huge number of new jobs.

It's clear that 2018 is a great year for large construction projects. Here are a few highlights of the major construction projects USA that occur in 2018.

One of the tallest buildings in the United States is to be opened.
